136 We must be cognizant of how our strategies and techniques of providing assisted ventilation to infants influence their long-term outcomes. Repeated cycling of the terminal airways from below critical opening pressure leads to cellular injury and inflammation (atelectotrauma). This results in alveolar collapse, atelectasis, interstitial edema, and elaboration of inflammatory mediators. The resulting atelectasis leads to a further reduction in lung compliance that necessitates higher inspiratory pressures, which further compromises surfactant production.

34 mL of O2 when fully saturated with oxygen. The second term of the equation describes the contribution of oxygen dissolved in the plasma. The dissolved portion of O2 in blood is linearly related to Po2, such that an increase in Po2 is accompanied by an increase in O2 content. 003 mL per 100 mL of blood with every 1-mm Hg increase in Po2. For an infant breathing 21% O2, the dissolved portion of the blood’s O2 content is only about 2% of the total. However, for a healthy patient breathing 100% O2, with a very high PaO2 of 500 mm Hg (not normally recommended because of the dangers of hyperoxia), the dissolved portion of the blood’s O2 content can be as much as 10% of the total.

B, At the beginning of expiration, the slow unit may still be filling and actually “inspires” from the exhaling fast unit. These effects are accentuated at higher frequencies, with gas “pedaling” back and forth between neighboring units with inhomogeneity of time constants.
